Well, the first thing is to throw away the idea that they're journalists.  That done, visit sites for the content, not the reviews.  Wait until after the first few weeks, and then get user reviews.

This isn't new, nor the first time.  See Kane & Lynch (look up Jeff Gerstmann), just offhand. 

There was also a CVG article on this a few years ago.

Gaming companies use meta-critic as performance reviews for their staff.  And as such, manipulating that has become a very sad art, and who can blame them when its their livelihood on the line?   That's why I go for the reviews of players, even if that means getting it later.  I have enough to play in any case (too much, actually), so I can wait... and reap the benefits of the short term memory of the market on most games in regards to pricing.

(I find the complete absence of any provision for readers to comment back both telling and oddly familiar. Dialogue was never the extreme Left's strong point. They always preferred the soapbox or lecture rather than a discussion or debate conducted in good-faith.)

The discussions are on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/...mag/posts/931983790161656

Better than nothing I suppose. But IMHO a FB membership is a pretty high price to pay just to comment on something. undecided Wink

A lot of sites are doing that now.  One of the reasons I stopped visiting Huffington Post.

No games for me... just a really bad joke.  And I'm glad I wasn't able to help you out with SteamGifts... this is a whole lot better!

Great gesture, Alex, and just as an aside- Alex has been a contributor to DonationCoder before, and really helps out with these kinds of promotions.  If anyone wants to do a mini-review of what you like about it, I'm sure he'd appreciate it!  I'll help to contribute... but I'm a bit swamped right now with work...  embarassed

Dominion: great concept, good production values...but the main actors don't bring 'it' for me.

Don't know if you watched the whole season, but the last couple of episodes were real game changers... from the plot to the actors.
11  Other Software / DC Gamer Club / GoD Factory Wingmen Offer on: August 28, 2014, 07:59:40 PM
GoD Factory Wingmen releases on steam tomorrow, and I was looking at it... mostly because there's a 2 for one preorder special right now.  Does anyone want to split it?  I'm purchasing it in the morning no matter what, so that's when the offer expires.

I've been watching The Last Ship, and I really like it!  Also, I watched Dominion, which had its season finale, and really enjoyed it.  Defiance has also been good this season.

They also have DRM free movies now.  That was announced in that e-mail too.

Well, it's over at last and she didn't make it through. Sad It was a pretty tense finale, they were the last to find out their verdict, and it was chosen by the judges. The way they structure the show is just so stressful... Anyway, she got really far and did great, I'm very proud of her. Thanks once again to all of you who watched, voted, and read about this little moment in my life. smiley

Sorry to see her not make it through Sad  The last couple of years have seen some unique talents make it through... and I thought hers should have been among that number.

But that's me. And as I said, I know fellow Baker Street Irregulars that positively love the Elementary series. So what do I know?

The world is full of people with just as many varied tastes, preferences, and likes.  It's good that there's so much for people to varyingly like and not.  Thmbsup

One of my favorite things about Elementary are the fact that they were not afraid to take certain parts of the mythology, and completely turn them on their head.  And I love the primary actors.

I watch the US version... Elementary.

I like both, but for different reasons.

I also like RDJ in the role in the movies.  But that's, to me, on a whole different level.

I don't know if that's better or worse...  huh

At least Google would have been highly unlikely to start charging you for the service, even if it would have meant having to invent some new high level ad blocker for it to be remotely usable.

 huh

Google could have also killed the service and rolled it into YT.  That's what people were most afraid of.

It's not just renamed, it's deleted.  I always make my account first as an admin, then delete the admin account.

But that last part is inspired... smiley

Oh, and one more thing I'd forgotten in relation to the admin login- I also automatically lock out anyone that tries to login as admin.  Just because I'm that way.
